2 months ago, Emily and her boyfriend Noah had unprotected sex.....
This is Emily, she lives in a small city called launceston, in Tasmania. She loves to play sport but painting is her real passion. Emily is just an ordinary 17 year old girl excpet she has a Sexually Transmitted infection named chlamydia.
Chlamydia affects a womans cervix and can often cause infertililty. More common symtoms of Chlamydia are pain in your lower adominal area, bleeding in between your peirod and pain when urinating.
Unfortunatley, if Chlamydia is left untreated, it can cause internal scarring of the fallopian tubes and ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside the uterus) which is very dangerous for a woman.
Because of Emilys infection, she needs to go for regular check ups at her doctors and recieve antibiotics and other perscribed medication.
There are many medical facilities near me, for example Launceston Medical Centre where I regularly visit for check ups.
Most cases of chlamydia are simply cured with antibiotics!
There is also a 24 hour General hospital and an After Hours Medical Centre round my area.
If you want a 0% percent chance of getting chamydia, avoid having vaginal, anal or oral sex completely.
